    Collector's Edition $39.99

    Regular $39.99

    I recieved a 50$ gift-card to Amazon.com and Borders from a friend, and now I am able to actually buy HL2, after all the cracked servers and Emporio updates, etc, I am just ready to actually have the legit game and play whenever I want without shit. I know I will be able to use Garry's Mod with both. But do both come with HL2 Deathmatch and Counter Strike? Is the only difference, that the Collector's Edition has Half Life: Source, with it? My main priority is to have Counter Strike: Source, and HL2 Deathmatch, and Garry's Mod. Which one should I get? Or is there a better set I could get for $50 or less? I didnt see anymore HL2's at Amazon.com. So probably not. And also I was wondering, does Day of Defeat: Source cost extra money?

    Get the regular one and upgrade to the silver pack so you can get all of the games you mentioned and Dod. I think it's only 10 bucks to upgrade. I'm almost positive you can't upgrade the Collector's edition.

    they're both $40, that's nuts, get the collector's edition

    DoD Source is going to be a stand alone game i think, so yeah it's going to cost money

    Just wondering why everyone has said regular? The Collectors Edition is the Silver pack you buy from Steam (HL2, CSS, and the entire back cataloge of games, all of HL1 and the expansions and everything) you also get DoDS (Yes you do get it, you will be bale to buy it as an add on but if you have Silver or Gold Pack you will get it free.

    So why just buy regular (Which is the Bronze STream pack which just has CSS & HL2) when you can get all these other games?

    You cannot upgrade at a later date either so if you suddenly decide you want the back catalogue or anything else that the Silver pack gives you would have to pay $40 to buy the whole game again.

    The only add on you will be able to buy is DODS which is still going to be $19.99, with Silver you get it free, with Bronze you have to pay for it.

    So

    Bronze Includes

    Half-Life 2
    Counter-Strike: Source
    Half-Life 2: Deathmatch

    Silver Includes

    Half-Life 2
    Counter-Strike: Source
    Half-Life: Source
    Half-Life 2: Deathmatch
    Day of Defeat: Source (When released)
    * Half-Life
    * Counter-Strike
    * Counter-Strike: Condition Zero
    * Counter-Strike: Deleted Scenes
    * Day of Defeat
    * Team Fortress Classic
    * Deathmatch Classic
    * Opposing Force
    * Ricochet



    Italic means its the back catalogue.

    Now which one?


    EDIT: I was also reading the comments and most of the people who brought it are retards.

    The game itself is awesome, no questions asked. The remake of Half Life 1 is cool too, but you can download that for free when you buy the regular version of Half Life 2.
    Errrrrrr no you can't

    * Exciting action and immersive storytelling with new realism
    * Player's presence affects surroundings and behaviors of others
    * Counter-Strike: Source; Half-Life: Source; Half-Life 2 prima book
    Yours Sincerely,

    Great so now I dont know which one to get. I thought the collector's edition just had HL2, HL Source and a T shirt. My friend bought the regular version, and he is able to play Garry's Mod, CS:Source and HL2: Deathmatch.
